Our sympathy to the family. To let you know that a memorial has been placed in the Salamanca Public Library from the Euterpean Music Club to purchase something in line with Betsy's love of music. Also to let you know that a memorial has been placed in our church in Betsy's name from the Womens Christian Society. I am treasurer of both groups but we don't know the address for any of you kids to receive notification. God Bless you.
